Busy week gratitude...

The past week was busy and full.  Sunday evening came, and along with it, the desire/need to just rest. So I did, making my weekly gratitude post a day later than usual.  Without a lot of words, but will a heart full of thanksgiving, here it is.
Since 2009 I've been counting my blessings thanks to the prompting of Ann Voskamp.
 I continue to count my thanks
piling up gratitude day by day
in my journal.
(and capturing some of my blessings via my camera or iPhone)

-on our visit, my mother-in-law waking up, smiling, trying to talk 
-lunch and a good visit with my sister-in-law
-driving out to beautiful Kayak Point
-all of our daughters driving up together to see grandma
-fun with our youngest grandson

-seeing our girls say goodbye to their grandma
-stopping at Lake Washington together on the way home
-Teriyaki Madness for lunch
-a safe drive home for all of us
-early morning devotions-God speaking to me from Exodus 15
-excercising with a fun new video with the ladies from church
-slow progress on our yard work, but progress nonetheless

-finally connecting with my sister on the phone after some days of phone tag
-more progress on the yard, bit by bit
-visiting a beautiful family owned greenhouse/nursery near us

  1. So much to be thankful for. He is good to His kids! Loved seeing your new mirrors. You can come work in our yard any time!

  2. Yep, we're smack dab in the middle of house projects, so I'm resonating with you, Elizabeth!
